HTML5 for mobiles

Is HTML5 for mobiles drastically different from other HTML development?

Does the book HTML5 for iOS and Android: A Beginner's Guide cover all other HTML5 features outside mobile development?

There are several things to consider on mobile devices compared to computers. There is no hover function, for example, so all features that realy on that won't work on mobiles. Then there are screen dimensions and font sizes to consider. In my framework different font faces and sizes are selected according to the device, browser and platform detected. It's lots of little things that you need to be aware of, really.

Thanks for the answer. I thought so! I have not tried HTML5 but just some Android programming.

Do you explain some custom framework or its just a way you work with in the book?

I didn't want to teach jQuery or other frameworks that are more advanced, instead I provide a simple, procedural (rather than object oriented) JavaScript framework to make things easy for people new to JavaScript, and who just simply want stuff to work quickly.
